Comfortable and well-equipped duplex in Anglet, between Biarritz and Bayonne. It is well situated for beaches , shopping and lots of activities. The forest of Chiberta is nearby for walks and a great Thalassotherapy centre with pool is situsted less than 10 minutes away.
Eric, the owner is very helpful and knowledgeable for all things local and further afield. Many charming towns and beachside resorts are all within easy reach, including wonderful San Sebastian, across the border into Spain (about 40 minutes drive) .
Good shops, including lots of specialist chocolate boitques, in Bayonne. There are many restaurants there too. Nearer the house, Les Halles in Cinq Cantons, is well worth a visit. It's just five minutes away.
A good local restaurant, Les Soly'less, is a short walk from the property. The proprietor is Can and it was on her recommendation thst we visited Labastide Clairance, a pretty and historic little town about 35 km away. Local Spar, just up the road from the property, is vey good, as is the bakery. The only slight drawback was that the Wifi was slow and not very reliable, but Eric is addressing this. All in all, we had a lovely stay.
